The Reason of this Great Superiority is apparent to all who carefully examine the pecu liar mechanism of these instruments in The Equalizing Scale. which distributes the tension of the strings upon all part* of the frame, relieving the instrument from concentrated strain in anr one part, thus securing much greater strength, durability, and power of keeping in tune, The Greater Length of String's, through aH the treble and middle notes, the distri bution of strings upon the 371 nonr Rrldge, which runs the whole length of the sounding board, giving greatly Increased Power of Vibration throughout its entire length, producing a purer tone and better accompaniment to the voice than any other instrument.

CWfeb-ly $tiscritotu0U0. A TERRIBLE ADVENTURE. About two months ago, while assisting to rig out a vessel in the river, a man named Peter Demery, living on Peterboro’ street, in the northern outskirts of the city, stuck a rusty spike through the sole of his left foot, and has ever since been laid up by the accident, once narrowly es caping an attack of lockjaw. His family consists of wife and boy, the latter about ten years old. Sunday afternoon the moth er and boy went on a visit to some friends on Gariot road, leaving the invalid lying on a bed that stood in a “recess” of the front room. As Demery goes on a crutch, he hail a heavy one lying on the bed when thov went away. V'ov three years the family had owned a large cur dog, of no particular value, but kept around for the same reason that niue tenths of the families in poor circumstances still feel, that they must keep a worthless cur about to eat up the provisions that might otherwise be eaten by a child. The dog wanted to go with the boy, but was driven back, and laid down on the step. Demery states that he had read for about an hour, when his attention was attracted to the dog. The anima! had walked in at the open door, and stood in the centre of the room uttering a growling, wheezing sort of noise, his eyes shining, and the hair on his back bristling up straight. He spoke sharply to the animal, who slunk under the bed, keeping up a howling as if in pain. A window is situated near the re cess and almost opposite the door, and this was a little way up at the bottom, the sash being held up by a hook. A sudden breeze coming up, created a draft that slammed the door shut, and Demery and his dog were thus shut up, as it were, together. He states that the dog kept up his annoying tones until he finally sj>oke sharp to him, w’hcn all at once, the brute bounded from under the bed and commenced running around the room. His eyes were full of blood, he kept snap ping his jaws together like a trap, and every hair on the animal seemed to stand erect. There was no foam about the brute’s jaws, but he emitted a sort of sudsy saliva that scented the room like musk. Round he went, turning over chairs, snapping at the blowing window curtain every time he passed,and each time he leaped over the cook stove, which stood out just from the wall. Demery urn not realize that he invoked any danger in speaking to the dog; he re garded the affair as arising from a desire of the dog to get out and follow the boy. So he yelled sharply at the brute, bidding hint lay down. The dog, just then, had halted near the door, and Demery was raised up on his elbow, holding his crutch in one hand, as he had a notion to hobble over and open the dour. Hardly had he spoken, when the dog bounded forward, giving a fearful howl. Instinctively, the man extended his crutch, which enme in contact with the dog’s head, and he went rolling on the floor. When he got np, it was to resume his race around the room, looking more frightful than ever. Demery sprang on the ba£k side of the bed, close to the wall, holding his crutch ready for defense, but hoping that the mad brute would not again attack him. It was now time when Demery might expect his wife and child to return at any moment, and it suddenly occurred to him that their return would only be to meet an attack from the dog. If they ascended the steps and opened the door, as was entirely natural, the dog would bite one or both. There was no longer room to donbt that he was rabid, and that his madness was grow ing worse all the time. He might shout an alar n as they stood at the door, but would they understand and heed it in time. It is but due to a sober, industrious man to state that in that moment of peril to his family and to himself, he resolved on a deed that should go down on record for future generations to read. He resolved to make that mad brute attack him hoping in the ctmnrrrle to deal him a death blow with Demery yolled at the dog. The animal was tearing around the room, snarling and clashing his jaws together, and he stopped, looked up for a moment, and then sprang for the bed. He just got his paws and head upon it when down came the crutch, and he rolieu over and Over. Three times was this repeated, and the fourth time the animal was stunned by the blow, and, while he lay gasping on the floor the crutch was broken to pieces over liis head, and he was afterward finished off with the axe. The man did not faint nor grow pale ; he dragged the body out doors and waited for his family, who came in about half an hour, and the earcass was buried. He yesterday hobbled down to the Central Station to s'ee if he had violated the ordinance by buryinv the body in his yard. It was there that, in a modest, hesi tating way, be gave the above facts to our reporter.—Detroit Press. . W. L. HALL, M. 0., Physician Jk, Surgeon, GARDINER, MAINE.
